Swimwear: The Bulge
I think there is agreement or at least some that the bulge under form fitting swim attire for guys is what seems to be the hang up with guys wearing skimpy swimwear. That is really the main difference between males and females on the lower portion of our bodies. So how do we go about trying to normalize swim bikinis, thongs, briefs, and the like?
First step is to wear them with respect. Don’t go out and try to flaunt the bulge. If your intent is to show off then you are doing nothing to help promote the acceptance of guys wearing swim briefs or less. Cutting out the lining and wearing a c-ring so you can bulge more is not going to help people like guys in a form fitting swimsuit. You are contributing to the negative image people have of them. Doing so around kids, teenagers, or even women is rather creepy and a big negative impact for us guys wanting to wear them freely.
Now I don’t think we need to go out of our way to try and hide the bulge either. We don’t need to wear a swimsuit that is really restrictive and smashes the boys. Also I don’t think we should wear a suit designed to really show off the package either. There is a time and place for them, but not at a family oriented beach for sure. Something middle ground would be ideal to work on gaining acceptance for bikinis, thongs, and swim briefs.
Next let’s not push the limits for the beach you attend. If you are in a conservative area, don’t go to the beach in a thong. First it is probably not legal. Secondly if there is not a woman wearing one you have no defense for wearing one. Go with something similar to what the women are wearing in the bikini department. Don’t go with something maybe one or two are wearing like a cheeky cut. We don’t have the acceptance they do to push things like that yet. I have my suits that I feel that can be worn anywhere that fits my need for skimpy. The sides are around the inch width, they have somewhere in the range of at least ¾ or more rear coverage, and mostly full frontal coverage. Some are flat front designs while others are a traditional center seamed contour.
Then carry yourself like you are in the so called norm for guys in swimwear, but with confidence. There is a difference in being confident and showing off. By confidence, I don’t mean parading around. I mean don’t act like you are wearing something that is not appropriate with it not being the norm. Enjoy the beach or pool like you would if you were wearing the norm of swim shorts. Don’t be looking at people trying to get them to react, just go about your business. I know it is nice to get a positive reaction, but the goal is trying to normalize skimpier swimwear for us. Doing everything we can to kind of mind our own business and enjoy the time in our against the norm swimwear is the goal. Now don’t ignore people completely, a friendly hi if walking by someone is a normal thing to do. We just need to avoid things that can be considered creepy like hey what do you think about my suit to a stranger.
To wrap things up, I’m not against the bulge. One of the reasons I like bikinis and thongs is how it molds to the package and holds me nicely in place and gives some definition. I wouldn’t say I’m rocking it down there especially when flaccid, which is the goal to stay in when wearing swimwear. Truthfully if I was more endowed I might be more likely to shy away from form fitting swimwear. I think people get the impression that you are trying to show off when you are larger even if you are not trying too. Guys aren’t going to get the same benefits as women do with breast size even though I’m sure some may have the same issue. There may be a time and place to bulge a little more, but not the places I go. My goal is always to try and make swim briefs and less more acceptable for guys to wear.
